't used these guys all the way from . . . last year. and then the romney campaign has a problem because they already put out a statement before this . . . oops. and then there is this man shawn spicer. when they are stone-cold busted on this he comes out and said us? we fired the guys. >> we at this point have an allegation. in that mere allegation has caused us to act swiftly and sever our ties with this firm, because we have a zero tolerance when it comes to this. we don't believe that it is appropriate, and we wanted to make a swift and bold action to illustrate that. >> cenk: no no no. mr. spicer the other side has not engaged in that type of behavior. you have no evidence of that. you have engaged in that behavior of and over again. was the swift bold action before or after he changed his name so he could continue this. they charge us with voter fraud all the time because they know that's what they have been doing behind the scenes for years and years. when we come back who do you think won the last nine presidential debates? i have the answer for you, and i thi
as president. we've had him for 3 1/2 years. mitt romney is still an open book. people have to say, do i want to live with this guy every day? is he going to be quick on his feet? how prone is he to gaffes? does he know how to spar? does he show an inner toughness? in truth the pressure is on mitt romney on this first debate to seem to be -- at least get parity with president obama or victory with the immediate pundit analysis after the game. >> when you have a challenger going up against an incumbent president, doesn't the debate stage also make it possible for the challenger to also look presidential because you are going head-to-head with the leader of the free world? >> absolutely. i think that's an advantage. give that in the column advantage sitting president. you immediately look presidential. you're arriving with a presidential entourage to denver. on the other hand, you've got to be careful you don't say anything at all controversial or squirrely, because you're not just in a debate, you're representing the united states all over the world. if you say something bizarre it's going too
and said he voted for obama four years ago and not sure at all. he is open to voting for governor romney if he knew what he stood for. that is governor romney's charge here to put some meat on the bones of what he stands for on his policies. and people are open to that. >> jim, imagine yourself as a debate moderator this week and put on your mask and go with it. what kind of questions would you like to see these candidates address that will actually speak to the concerns you hear voters have about the future of this country? >> there is one question and i don't want to tell jim what to do but ask it different ways, and that is how in the world what you are proposing enough to get this country back to work, because neither of these candidates has a plan and by their own party's ideology and i want him to push them on that and that would be an opportunity for the president to explain what it is and it is not just incremental, but an opportunity for governor romney to make that pitch to voters, hey, i have a plan that's different, and something we haven't tried before that is going to be ne
for four years. as president. mitt romney has been through a long and grueling campaign. there is very little white space left on his canvas. so if they're really going to do something different that changes how they're understood, it has to be something very big. >> it's interesting, both candidates, campaigns are trying to lower expectations a lot. do you think mitt romney actually could be kind of better prepared than his campaign that's trying -- >> there's no question, he participated in 20 debates and as you know, you hosted a few of them, he was always well prepared. he understood what was at stake and i thought he was perhaps better prepared than any of the other candidates but you know, these debates can reinforce the current perception of the candidates and i think that will pretty much help president obama, but if mitt romney can create a different impression that he's somebody that's more likeable, that he understands the issues andhat he's more compassionate or empathetic, it could re-align the campaign. i don't think by much, because president obama right now is in a very
and a half years. >> bill: all right. you are going to make a prediction for me tonight. you think romney is going to do well on wednesday. >> i do think he is going to do well. >> are you rooting for romney by the way? >> at this point i can't bring myself to ask for four more years of this. >> bill: you are rooting for romney. >> just like i said, i can't stand another four years of this. i will will gamble on a different approach. >> bill: there you go. directly ahead, ben stein says hillary clinton should lose her job as secretary of state over the assassination in libya. and later actor samuel l. jackson ranting on behalf of >> bill: personal story segment tonight, commentator ben stein very angry about the assassination of the american ambassador to libya. earlier this week mr. stein said this about secretary of state hillary clinton. >> she should have resigned over that murder of the ambassador in libya because it was her fault that he didn't have adequate security. >> oh o, you know what? it is a good point. you know, when -- >> -- she is in charge. >> yeah. >> if she screws up,
and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery. romney slammed the president for the defense cuts coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility. >> reporter: romney who has courted veterans two days in a row. he's seizing on new economic data. from
cannot afford four more years of barack obama. >> he's got some experience. mitt romney beat him so he knows what he's talking about. >> he got creamed in the debates. >> you don't think his advice is any good? >> gingrich trying to be the party soldier for mitt romney. the polls are not going to dramatically change after the debate. we play a roll here. we in the media build things up do or die. and certainly with 40 days to go these are crucial opportunities for mitt romney. but most of them tend to be a muddle. each side makes its points, we all analize it. they are not the dramatic game changers that either side might hope for. >> i'll disagree with you because i think when it comes to that 5 or 6 or 7% undecided voters out there in ohio or virginia or florida, thee debates i think will convince them to make up their mind one way or another. i agree for most americans they've made up their minds already. but for the undecided or the switchables. the debates will be critical. >> do you think they can move them in dramatic fashion? >> i don't know dramatic. >> it only takes a point o
romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is expectations, so much of a political debate like this. one of the president's advisers the other day talking about, you know, the president's so loquacious. he's got to keep his answers tighter. and by turns, mitt romney's camp talking about the president's gifted oratorical skills. so they both can't be right, but i think both sides are relatively confident going into this. >> to hear both of them tell it, the other guy is the best debater since abe lincoln himself. mike viqueira, thank you so much. appreciate your time, sir. there are, of course, great expectations on both sides for next week's debate. the pressure is really on for mitt romney to knock it out of the park, as he entrance the debate, trailing in nine of
. in the old days, 20, 30 years ago, governor romney would have had literally, out of the 39 days, he would have had close to 39 days to turn it around. but now with a good chunk of the electorate, maybe a fifth or a fourth, he's got to move very, very quickly. it puts even greater pressure on the debate coming up this week. that's make or break for the romney campaign, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. i expect he'll do pretty well. he mopped the floor in those republican debates. that might not have been such a high bar, but still did very well. >> robert, let's talk about this early voting thing. do you think that one party has a built-in advantage when it comes to early voting over the other party? >> you know, that's an interesting question, craig, because eight years ago, i would have said that the republican party does a very good job of get out the vote, knocking on doors, calling people's cell phones and so forth, but truth be told, the obama campaign did a fairly good job of that in 2008. they really did change the map from a trajectory standpoint and really did even the playing fie

that mitt romney spent his draft eligible years writing love letters in france instead of serving in vietnam, but there is also a human benefit to showing him, right? human. an ounce of handsome, humanized mitt at this point might be worth a pound of questions on how he avoided serving during the war. they are trying. they've even got him talking about health reform in massachusetts again. and conservatives now are so scared of him losing as badly as it looks like him losing that they are not even squawking about it this time the way they did when he talked about romney care just last month. the romney campaign is trying to do some things right. they're trying to make people dislike their candidate less. and then thurston strikes again. >> so he pulled me in, he tied up the boat for me, he rescued me just as he's going to rescue this great country. >> at the national level, fairly or not, voters say they regard mitt romney as somebody who doesn't care about working people. who doesn't care about them. it is a lot for the campaign to overcome. and they have not got much time. even if you igno
it in those swing states. and that's because mitt romney played defense a lot of the first half of this year. whether it was in the primaries or in may, when the primary was finally over, and the obama campaign really started to hit him hard on his bain record. there hasn't an opening or an effective way for him to articulate a vision to turning the economy around. and it shows in the poll numbers. >> lynn, if governor romney can't hang this economy over the president's neck in the next three or four weeks, is there a chance he can beat him? >> of course there is one big blooper from obama, and the mistake may certainly change the trajectory of the campaign. but garrett made a very good point. i want to quickly build on another reason why obama might have dealt with housing today. he's doing his debate prep in a suburb of las vegas. where is he now that it's hard hit? so, again, this is another reason -- a reason he's camped out there, deliberately, so to try to bolster his support in nevada. and again, i think he's just prophylactically building a community around himself, dealing with hous
. that is what mitt romney and bain capital have been doing for years. they take a good company and outsourcing to china. what they do with the other companies, they will go in there and harvest, like you say, they put the minimum down, they buy the company, loaded up with debt, pay their managers and give them big bonuses and below the company up and run the machinery and the workers to death and they do like a car thief does with a car. they run it like a chop shop. they take the best part of the company, sell it off, and the rest they scrap. that is what they do with their employees and the american taxpayer, we pay the company's federally backed up pension funds. guest: you have the formula down. what is happening there is happening all over this country. one of the workers who has worked there for 33 years, when he heard that it was bain capital, they had some hope that there was a human face and they could reach out to mitt romney. this area of northwest illinois is between two swing states. he and another worker at the plant, they went to delton door, iowa where mitt romney was speaking.
a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this could be a bit of a surprise coming next week, where mitt romney maybe ought to refocus his whole campaign, get momentum and really get after barack obama at a time when barack obama least wants him to. >> i totally agree with you, piers. this is the moment for mitt romney to seize the momentum back. he's going to put everything he can into winning this debate and you know, the media doesn't like a lopsided race so i actually have predicted that the media are going to declare that mitt romney is the winner of the first debate regardless of actually what happens, because the pendulum cannot sustain itself if it's too lopsided in terms of the media. it's also true as stephanie said, five out of the six challengers to incumbents in presidential races have been declared the winner of the first debate, because they are on the same stage and mitt romney, he won

. there was a fascinating moment during a republican debate that happen like last year. you had mitt romney and newt gingrich agree we needed immigration reform. what about the border effect that there were having this conversation. it was completely ignored. mayor ronnie gave a speech -- mitt romney gave a speech. this is an utterly marginal issue. it has more skilled immigration than you do less. this is not mean any kind of changes. it is also true that the immigration debate is framed in some ways and others by others. i guess i see these emergence strategies versus ... strategies. when you're talking about a party. you have this large number of non-college educated white voters. these folks are facing these economic structural changes. they have anxieties that flow from that. in 2004, you won a lot of these voters. suddenly you are counting social security reform. that is something that democrats capitalize on effectively in 2005. on the other hand you look at the affordable care act. what happened? you have this republican party where they recognize a lot of our voters are older. a lot have an

americorps would be defunded, the largest affiliate in the united states was city year, and mitt romney was on the board. i wrote him a letter saying we should continue this. i called him and i was out of the white house and i said, governor, i love city year. that is what americorps is all about. i hope you will save it. he urged the republican congress to continue to support city year, and they did. i just visited the program in south africa where the youth unemployment rate exceeds 40%, and 80% of the volunteers in johannesburg have a job the day they leave city year. it turns out it is good economics and good for the society. all of you should know that, and, governor, i thank you for being here. the podium is yours.
